Join us for a low-impact but high-intensity water aerobics class. This class is designed to improve flexibility, range of motion, strength, muscle tone and cardiovascular endurance while using the resistance of the water to cushion the feet, knees and back. Exercises are performed to lively, motivating music, and are effective and easy to follow. There will be deep and shallow exercises, and modifications can be made based on the participant’s ability to swim and fitness level.
Please note: Plus members are able to take one Water or Aqua Aerobics as part of their membership. The fee for an additional day is $45 for one additional day and includes both sessions (~10 classes), or $90 for two additional days (includes both sessions or ~20 classes total). This program runs through both Spring Term sessions. It begins Jan. 31, skips March 13 and 27, and ends April 24. This is a general-level fitness class.
This class is open to the La Roche staff, faculty and public for a fee. The rate for community members is $90 for one day per week or $180 for two days per week. LRU staff and faculty can take this course for the ALL member price.
This course will be taught by Cathy Fodor for the first session. The plan is that Deb Carrera will return from her medical leave to teach the class in March.
